Ocoee Whitewater Center



During the 1996 Summer Olympics, the Ocoee River was modified to enhance the rapids, so there is a challenging course for experienced kayakers and rafters. The Ocoee Whitewater Center is administered by the Forest Service with the mission of “caring for the land and serving the people.”
